Is there any way to report a USER rather than just a post? Like that idiot that's spamming Sex right now. I wanna do a RARGH about him, but I know the posts are NSFW and I am, y'know, AT WORK.

Or would I have to PM you guys and stuff?

    I simply report the post and say that this user has made others like it.

    Isn't the sex forum kinda NSFW anyway? I wouldn't want a colleague to see me browsing it!

    Well, there's that, but a quick glance (by a colleague) at a screen like the basic forum won't show anything naughty, whereas a quick glance at a PAGE O' PORN probably wouldn't go down so well.

    Problem with that is that I pretty much know the content of the posts, but even just clicking on one of them means I risk people seeing above mentioned PAGE O' PORN.

    Hey franki, no way to report a user I'm afraid but doing what Indrid says above is the best bet.

    Also if you go to the offedning user's profile you could add them to your ignore list - that way you won't see anything that they have posted.. might be a way to fill that gap inbetween you reporting it and us banning them - we do our best to make that gap as small as possible!

    Hmmmm ok. If I was to send one of you a PM, would that work, too? So that I don't have to actually click on any of the posts etc.

    I think you need to PM the mods for that, forward the PMs to them etc.

    Who's harassing you bb? Want me to beat them up for you? :heart:

    no, i thought there was potential harrassment when i received a pm from a noob titled 'fuck' followed by the words 'you want' but maybe im too suspicious. Just thought id check if we could report pm's like the report post button. Its sorted now anyhoo, but thanks for the beating offer :)

    Franki is right, if you ever receive a dodgy PM just forward it to a mod (Jo7, **helen**, Fostress or LauraO) and we can deal with it from there.

    It sounds like you've sorted the one you got but feel free to forward on any info - we wouldn't want them to be PMing other people too.
